Yes, a state visit. I'm also looking forward to this. The Belgium RF really needs something big like this.

I doubt it, as children under the age of 18 rarely attend State Visits (or official acts/visits). But in the years to come, I'm sure we will see Elisabeth and the other children at many a State Visit

There is a program of the visit in French on the Gouvernement du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg - Informations et actualités website.
It would be great if someone could translate it into English.

Complete translations are not allowed on this board, another rule which I have learned a few days ago. So I will not give you the background information and only the program points as a summary:

Tuesday 20 March 2007
Around noon, King Albert II and Queen Paola will receive Grand-Duke Henri and Grand-Duchess Maria Teresa at the Place des Palais in Brussels.
There will be military honours and the Luxembourgian delegation will be presented.

The Grand-Duke and Grand-Duchess will then head for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for an act of homage.

After returning on the Royal Palace, there will be a private lunch with the King, the Queen, Queen Fabiola, the Duke and Duchess of Brabant and also Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz.

In the afternoon the Grand-Duke will have a meeting with Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, also on the Royal Palace.

After this the grand-ducal couple, accompanied by the Belgian royal couple, will be welcomed on the Grand-Place by the Mayor and Aldermen of Brussels, for the traditional meeting with the city's authorities.

The Grand-Duke will then go to the Maison du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg which is build in the Quartier Européen, for an informal meeting with the Luxembourgian community in Belgium.

In the evening at the Château de Laeken a dîner de gala will be the closure of the first day of this visit. The diner is offered by the King and Queen.

Wednesday 21 March 2007
The Grand-Duke and Grand-Duchess, in attendance of the Belgian royal couple, will visit the city of Bruges in Flanders. They will be welcomed by the Governor of the Province and by the Mayor and Aldermen of Bruges.

After a brief passage at Bruges' City Hall, the Grand-Duke and the King will visit the Port of Zeebrugge, the world's largest port for the transportation of new cars and one of Europe's major terminals for natural gaz.

The Grand-Duchess and the Queen will visit the School for Lace in Bruges and attend an informative meeting. They will also visit the Lace Musuem, adjacent to the school, which was created by the Sisters Apostolines in 1717 .

The Grand-Duchess and the Queen will also visit the exposition Albrecht Dürer – graphiste génial de la Renaissance at Arents House and La beauté et la folie at the Church of Our Lady in Bruges.

In the evening the Grand-Duke and Grand-Duchess will host a reception in honour of the King and Queen. The reception will be held at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.

Thursday 22 March 2007
The Grand-Duke and Grand-Duchess, in attendance of the Belgian royal couple, will visit the city of Namur. They will be welcomed by the Governor of the Province and by the Mayor and Aldermen of Namur during a reception at the Théâtre Royal.

The grand-ducal couple and their Belgian hosts will then visit the Université Notre-Dame de la Paix de Namur.

The last stage of the State Visit will be held in the Province of Liège, in Eupen, the centre of the German-speaking community in Belgium (nine municipalities with German as native language).

The Grand-Duke and Grand-Duchess will say farewell during a short ceremony and head for Luxembourg again.

Most likely Prince Laurent and Princess Claire will attend the Dîner de Gala given at the Château de Laeken. And most likely they will also be invited for the Concert in the Musée des Beaux Arts in Brussels.

The Grand Duke is a nephew to the King (son of the King's late sister Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte).
The Grand-Duke therefore also is a cousin to Prince Philippe, Princess Astrid and Prince Laurent.

Prince Laurent and Princess Claire hardly have any public appearances. They are low in the 'pecking order' and that becomes clear in the public representation as well. They come after the royal couple, after Queen Fabiola, after the Duke and Duchess of Brabant and after Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz.

Why would Princess Claire And Prince Laurent come after Lorenz and Astrid? As Laurent is a son of a reigning monarch, he should by rights "outrank" his sister, and she should come after him in any official function. Or am I totally wrong?
